    Former Employee - Process Engineering Manager in Camberley, England
    Former Employee - Process Engineering Manager in Camberley, England

    I worked at Fluor full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Large and high calibre peer group. Provides access to a great amount of technical standards and guidelines. Technical support from various centres the world over is truly amazing.

    Cons

    Some of the senior staff are well-entrenched for years and seem to view new staff as threats. Group meetings of project staff are rarely held. Project work force tends to be too large and unwieldy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to bring in fresh thoughts and break up the old-fashioned heirarchical functioning.

    Highly organized and fair and mixed culture. There are opportunities to advance if you strive for.

    Some competitions of course. You need to prepare yourself not to be outdated. (This is good thing though). Sometimes it can be stressful to meet deadlines because there are projects you are working.

    I worked at Fluor

    Pros

    during y time there I worked under a specific project project and management team and i thoroughly enjoyed it. It was more that work and coworkers it was a family.

    Cons

    Projects come to an end, managers move on new ones come in and do not necessarily embrace the company culture the same ways. It is unfortunate for the long time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees, utilize the HR practices in place to assist you with retention.
